We help people prevent suicide and communities become suicide-safer
Comprehensive, layered and integrated, there is a program for everyone who wants to help.
Why it mattersEvery year more people die by suicide than from all of the armed conflicts around the world and, in many places, about the same or more than those dying in motor vehicles. For every suicide, up to 100 others may be injured by non-fatal suicidal behaviors. In any year, as many as 6% of the population have serious thoughts of suicide.
We know that most people considering suicide would choose to live if they had support to deal with painful problems in living. We also know that most people considering suicide communicate their intent, directly or indirectly. Our programs provide caregivers and other helpers with awareness and skills that help to save lives.
